CHE 805 is the second in a two-course sequence on chemical engineering principles for non chemical engineers. This sequence was developed at Michigan State University to provide a distance-learning option for continuing-ed students as well as students wishing to pursue a graduate degree in chemical engineering. Topics covered in CHE 805 include dimensional analysis; laminar and turbulent flow; fluid friction; macroscopic mass, mechanical and momentum balances; microscopic (shell) mass and momentum balances; design of flow systems; steady-state and unsteady-state heat conduction, heat-transfer coefficients for forced and natural convection, condensation, and boiling; radiation heat transfer; design of heat exchangers; mass transfer by diffusion and convection; analogies between momentum, heat, and mass transfer; absorption, stripping, and extraction in packed columns and stagewise operations; binary and multicomponent distillation; extraction involving partially miscible fluids.
